Corinne Bailey Rae with Jamila Woods

Showbox (map) Downtown
Tues June 6 at 8:30 pm All Ages

You could be forgiven if, upon first listening to early Corinne Bailey Rae songs like “Like a Star” and “Put Your Records On” (her biggest hit), you were lulled into a peaceful, almost bored state by her gossamer voice and soft jazz stylings. But listen more closely, and you’ll find a voice that’s soulful and richly textured, as well as music and emotions that grow more complex with time. Rae’s album, The Sea, was haunted by the accidental death of her young husband and went to darker places, but it was still a commercial success. Her latest, The Heart Speaks in Whispers, featuring collaborations with KING and Esperanza Spalding, reaches in new directions, creating a lush R&B-tinted landscape. “Tell me you’re on fire,” she sings on “Tell Me,” a standout track. “Tell me that you’re right where you belong.” ANGELA GARBES
